The first two images are quick character sketches tat i have designed based on a few ideas for character persona.  The first (the lady) i want her to be a Secretary or a Librarian, i want her to look very bubbly and that she takes her job very seriously. she will have a very bouncy walk, created by the curls in her hair and her abnormally heavy back side. she will wear a lot of colours and a lot of eccentric make up, teamed with a frumpy cardigan. shes always happy to help but acts older than she is. 
The second character (the male) i want him to be the embarrassing dad. I want him to be a male who is going through a mid life crisis.He has three kids and wants to be cool in their eyes, so he wears baggy pants drives a sports car and spikes his hair. hoping for recognition. He sticks out like a sore thumb by walking with a strut and talking like a fifteen year old, he associates everyone by the phrase 'Duuuuuuudddee!.'
These characters i will be developing in the near future and making them come to life with facial expressions, full bodies and props. I am planning on creating their colour palettes also but for the time being they are remaining biro ink sketches.

The last image was created by segregating this part of my own face from the rest and sketching what i see. trying to make it as realistic and detailed as possible. I am trying to work on life drawing alot over the summer in order to aid my concept art in third year. 

More to come soon guys!

Here i have sketched an eye, wanting to focus on making it as realistic as possible. I have used brown parcel paper, teamed with  coloured pencil, pastel, biro and even white nail vanish and cotton buds. I used coloured pencil for the actual sketch. i then made the image look more three dimensional by using pastels and coloured biro to pop colours out. I then used white nail vanish as white coloured pencil wasn't  vibrant enough to create the light source on the eye. I think it is effective as it looks three dimensional and I believe it does look realistic. I want to keep practicing on this to help my drawing skills develop further.
